Applications from international students are accepted. It is strongly recommended that international applicants successfully complete undergraduate college work leading to a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college of arts and sciences in the United States or Canada. However, all courses taken in satisfaction of the pre-medical course requirements for admission must be taken at or accepted as transfer credits by an accredited college in the United States or Admissions 14 Canada, and must be acceptable to that institution toward a baccalaureate degree in arts or sciences. Students who are not US citizens or permanent residents are not eligible for NYMC-SOM financial aid. Federal law mandates that only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible to receive such aid. (Permanent residents must provide a copy of their unconditional Green Card upon request when applying for financial aid.) Accepted students who are non-US citizens or do not obtain permanent resident status by July 1st of the year entering medical school, must deposit into a bank escrow account to NYMC-SOM an amount equal to four years of tuition and fees by June 30th of their matriculation year. More information is available on the SOM section of the website on the Medical Students from LCME/AOA Accredited Schools page.
International applicants in F-1 status who are applying to the School of Health Sciences and Practice after receiving a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. or Canadian college must contact the International Student and Scholar Advisor. More information is available on the SHSP section of the website on the SHSP International Students page.
New students must bring their I-20 forms, passports and I-94 cards to International Student and Scholar Advisor upon arrival on campus. Please contact us if you have questions about your visa status or are planning a trip outside the U.S. More information is available on the GSBMS section of the website on the GSBMS International Students page.
